We are currently closed to on-site shopping as we prepare to reopen to on-site shopping in June.  Please check back for open days and hours when we get closer!


Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express.  We prefer to do credit and debit card transactions rather than cash, as it can be a contact-free payment.  (You may also use your gift certificates!)

Thank you for your understanding and support during this challenging time!


Feel free to contact us via the email form below, and we will do our best to respond in a timely manner - we have been flooded with messages lately!  Thanks in advance for your patience and support!

Please do not come to shop if you or anyone in your household is showing signs of illness.  We want to slow the spread of COVID in our area, and we care about the wellness of our staff as well as our customers.  We will do the same - rest assured that any staff handling the items in your order will be following strict safety protocol and will not be ill.
